A die-hard supporter of Gombe state governor, Muhammadu Inuwa, has lost his life on Sunday, September 19, after he fell off from a moving vehicle in the governor’s convoy which was headed to Bajoga/Funakaye local government.
Ahmad Sagir, 30, popularly called Khalifah died instantly after suffering from a fractured skull.
The governor immediately disengaged the ambulance in his convoy to take Khalifah straight to the State Teaching Hospital Gombe for better medical attention. He was however confirmed dead by the doctors upon arriving the hospital.
A statement released by the Director-General (DG) Press Affairs Government House, Ismaila Uba Misilli said the governor described the young party faithful as “a respectful, hard, working and promising fellow who was known for his die-hard support for APC and Governor Yahaya’s project.”
The governor was reported to have suspended all his engagements for the day in honor of the deceased who has since been buried according to Islamic injunctions.
